Sad news for ‘Eureka’ fans. EW is currently reporting that the show will not go past its fifth season. Just last week it was reported that they had ordered six episodes for a sixth season, but that seems to have fallen through. As of now, next season will be the last.
In a statement, Syfy assures fans that the now-final season “will bring this great series to a satisfying end.” Still, it is impossible not to shed a tear for what is arguably one of the best shows on the network. Fans do still have another Christmas episode and another full season to look forward to before the end. Bidding farewell to the town of Eureka in 2012 will be a very sad day indeed.
Here is the complete statement from Syfy:
“After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka. But Eureka is not over yet. There is a new holiday episode this December and 12 stellar episodes set to debut next year, marking its fifth season and six memorable years on Syfy. The 2012 episodes are some of the best we’ve seen, and will bring this great series to a satisfying end. We are very grateful to Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia, their team of incredible writers, and an amazing cast and crew who have consistently delivered a series we continue to be very proud of. We thank the fans for their support of this show and know they will enjoy its final season in 2012.”
